About this item

&p&Prosperity theology—the belief that financial and physical well-being is God’s will for his followers—has become prevalent in modern-day Christianity. For Christians looking to better understand how it is affecting the life and growth of the church around the world, this book is an accessible and practical resource.&/p&

&p&Evaluating the prosperity theology movement from a biblical and evangelical perspective, the authors encourage readers to think critically about the ways in which the theology we follow can lead toward or away from the kingdom of God. &i&Prosperity Theology and the Gospel&/i& is in four parts: The first part turns our attention to God’s word and looks at what the Bible says about the issue of prosperity. Part 2 looks at the issue from different perspectives—be it historical, ethical, or sociological. Part 3 considers the impact of prosperity theology in different regions of the world through several case studies. Part 4 proposes how we might respond to some of the challenges we have identified and what could be a way forward for us all. Each chapter is followed by ideas for further thought and discussion.&/p&

&p&Contributors include Femi Adeleye, Christopher Wright, Joel Tejedo, Valdir and Maicon Steuernagel, and many others.&/p&
